Abu Dhabi’s Tourism Development & Investment Company (TDIC) has appointed UK-based PricewaterhouseCoopers (PwC) to monitor its contractor and subcontractor performance on its Saadiyat island development.

PwC will provide auditing services to monitor the compliance of contractors in regards to worker’s welfare regulations on the Saadiyat island development. This will involve monitoring compliance with UAE Labour law and TDIC’s Employment Practice Policy (EPP).

“TDIC is deeply committed to safeguarding the rights of workers on its projects. We are happy with the results we have achieved to date through our EPP and the appointment of PwC will help us to confirm that all our contractors and subcontractors are adhering to all their contractual obligations in relation to workers’ rights and that they have the right support to help them meet these regulations,” said Sultan Mohamed al-Mahmood, executive director of strategic performance, TDIC.
